“Madam hiyo size yako hatunanga!!!” Are you a busty girl tired of hearing this statement everytime you walk into a Kenyan store trying to find a decent bra? Worry no more! Four women are changing the face of lingerie wear in Kenya with the brand #DoubleDeesKe.
Charity Migwi (a management consultant), Constance Tipis (a psychologist) Millicent Njoroge (a fine artist and filmmaker) and Stella Lang’at (model) set out to curate a line of sexy and comfortable lingerie best suited for the big breasted ladies.
Double Dee’s Lingerie was founded after their individual struggles in finding beautiful lingerie that fit their DD. The founders set out to create products that come in a wide range of sizes and in gorgeous styles and colours. They opened their first store located in Riverside Drive 44 Complex on June 1st where they stock the finest bras, panties, lingerie. They have a vast size range but give priority to full-busted ladies from DD to K-cups!
Double Dee’s also offers a variety of services at their store. If you are unsure of your size, they have free bra fittings for their walk in clients. A customer can also make a 30min appointment for any bra related consultation.
Many Kenyan women are culprits of ill-fitting bras. The bra back riding up to almost shoulder is a common one I have spotted amongst many Nairobi women.
Check out this list of 10 from Double Dee’s, an indication that you definitely need to know your size and buy the best fit for you.
- Is your bra too hot?
- Are your cups overflowing?
- Are your boobs bulging at the sides?
- Is your bra back riding up?
- Does your bra pucker under your arms?
- Do you bra straps keep slipping?
- Is your bra sagging?
- Are the underwires pinching and poking?
- Do your bra straps make your shoulders sore?
- Did you buy the same bra size as you did last year and it doesn’t fit anymore?
